is beginning. >> thank you. i am going to move ahead because are you confident that the obama administration and congress can agree on defense cuts that do not impair significantly the ability of the united states to remain the world's dominant superpower? >> not. i think that person outline of a small budget deal when you talk to reasonable members of both parties in congress and there are still some who belong in that category. you can come up with some mechanisms for increasing revenue and some mechanisms for restraining, reducing, that could at least get us to a small budget deal for the next two to three years with some relief for to avoid another round of sequestration and so forth. whether we can see our way through the political process to get there is another question altogether. i think i am by nature an optimist. i want to believe rationality will prevail but so far it hasn't. time after time, from the imposition of sequestration to the recent shutdown and so forth. so i am not confident at this point, but the conversation we need to be having is one of raising public awareness of
-in this deal will be another obama administration failure. susan, good morning. you on with trita parsi. caller: thank you for educating us on what is happening. since this was a big issue, my question on the heels of the how did thats, treaty and any of the safeguards having to do with compliance of nuclear weapons mixed in with the agreement that was just passed this weekend? are we ignoring what was discussed at the united nations or did the united nation's not include anything to do with nuclear weapons used for mass destruction? guest: the treaty is the basis of this agreement. it is specifically mentioned in the text as well is on the last page of the deal. that is something the iranians insisted on. their interpretation is that there is such a right to enrich -- such a thing as the right to enrich. statest think the united has had any objections to that. the difference has been the difference of interpretation of ,rticle four of the treaty whether there is a right to enrich or not. using that as a legal framework, the two sides made progress last year, whatis happened this past weekend,
are in the difficult middle of this debate, shira. >> thank you. >> the objective middle. the tiny little space that's about this big. i'm wondering at roll call if you see obama care being an issue that lasts all the way to november 2014. >> yes. and unfortunately for my reporters, too, who are so sick about writing about this story line, because we have done it for the last three cycle, i do see it as being the primary issue for elections in 2014, no doubt about it. especially given what ross detailed about how the deadlines, new parts of the law are going to come to light every few months or so, we are going to be talking about this and seeing it on campaign ads between now and november. >> i want you guys to weigh in quickly on the other big story of the day, the supreme court telling us that it will take up the issue of obama care again, at least one part of it. the justices agreed to take up the issue of the law that requires employers of a certain size to offer insurance coverage for birth control and other reproductive health services without a co-pay. maria, how big of a deal do you think t
. >> okay. thank you. >> i'm going to move ahead. because i think are you confidence that the obama administration in congress can agree on defense cuts? that do not impair significantly the ability of the united states to remain the world's dominant superpower? >> no. i think that there is an jot line of at least small budget deal to be had. when you talk to reasonable members of both parties in congress, there are still some that belong in the category. you can come up with some mechanisms for increasing revenue and some mechanisms for restraining the reducing entitlement costs. that could at least get us a small budget dream for the next two three years. with some relief for, you know, avoid another round of sequestration and so forth. whether we can see our way through the political paralysis to get there is another question all together. i think that so, you know, by nature an optimist. time after time from the in position of sequestration. so i'm not confident at this point i think the conversation we need to be having is one of raising public awareness of some of the very rea

. thank you for joining us by phone this morning. biggest takeaways from the president speech in san francisco yesterday? despite think everything, the talk that immigration will get done this year, is is that president obama and the white house is committed to pushing for this. it seems the president has not of gettinghe idea something done in the next few weeks, even though it seems a lot of people on capitol hill have. that speech yesterday, the president seemed inclined to support breaking the immigration reform effort down into pieces rather than a big, sweeping senate bill. does that mean it is more likely to get something done? they have been indicating it is something they would be willing to go along with. i think the division between having it in pieces and a comprehensive bill is not as great as it seems. ultimately the democrats say they would be ok with having a bill in pieces, so long as every single aspect gets done, and that includes a path to citizenship to those here illegally. whether or not they do it in pieces, democrats will only go along with it, provided every
